The hunt is on to find a robber who fractured his victim’s arm after he violently pushed her to the ground in Wembley.

The 33-year-old woman was targeted by the man as she walked in Forty Avenue towards Barn Hill after getting off a 223 bus.

She noticed he was following her and crossed the road when he ran after her yelling that she must handover her bag to him.

He pushed her over and fled with the bag and its contents.

The victim managed to flag down a passing car and the driver did a search of the area but they lost sight of the robber after he fled into the Chalkhill Estate.

The suspect is white man, age late 30s to 40, fat, bald and was wearing a dark coloured coat and trousers.

The attack took place on Sunday, 15 December, at around 11pm.

DC Louise Whittaker, investigating officer, said: “This was a frightening attack for the victim, which resulted in her receiving a terrible injury. We are asking for any witnesses to come forward that might be able to help us identify the suspect.”

Anyone with information should call DC Whittaker on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
